2.6 Notes Example 9
Suppose we rolled a fair, six–sided die 10 times. Let T be
the event that we roll at least 1 three. If one were to
calculate T you would need to ﬁnd the probability of 1
three, 2 threes, · · · , and 10 threes and add them all up.
However, you can use the complement rule to calculate

Probability Laws Notes The general addition rule is a way of ﬁnding the
probability of a union of 2 events. It is
P(A ∪ B ) = P(A) + P(B ) − P(A ∩ B )
